Aboard Cumano Lansink won the World Jumping Championship title in 2006 – in Aachen. The retirement will take place Saturday evening before the winning round of the “Best of Champions” jumping competition. Cumano (Cassini I x Landgraf I), who is now 18 years old, has been one of the biggest stars of the sport. In addition to the World Jumping Champion title, Cumano also claimed the silver medal at the European Championships in Mannheim in 2007. The pair also won the Grand Prix in Calgary in 2004, and competed on the Belgian team at the Olympic Games in Athens in 2004 and in Hong Kong in 2008.

In the future Cumano will be used for breeding. The stallion has already sired several top horses, such as Niels Bruynseel’s Nasa, Pedro Veniss’ Amaryllis, Penelope Leprevost’s Nenuphar Jac and Rene Lopez’s Noblesse de Tesse. You can read more about Cumano in our interview with his groom Maarten Roels.
